How to Find the Right Supplement to Fix Your Horse’s Diet
I am sure you have noticed, every time you walk into a feed store, how many supplements there are available to you. Multiple brands. And within every brand, multiple choices. Even for me, the amount of choice gets overwhelming. And trying to read labels to compare them will make your eyes go crossed.
Enter FeedXL, to help you with choosing just the right products. But very quickly you will find the problem just follows you here. It is very simple to get to the point in FeedXL where you can see just which vitamins and minerals are missing from the diet. BUT, when you go to find the perfect supplement to fit in the diet and fill all of those gaps, you will find there are THOUSANDS of supplement options. Even for me, it is impossible to find the one that is going to be the best option!
Enter the FeedXL Supplement Finder!
Click this button in FeedXL and we put the power of software to work for you. FeedXL searches through every supplement option and puts together a list of supplements for you that will fill all the gaps in your horse’s diet. The list of supplements is complete with the dose needed to fill the gaps. And it is ranked from best fit down. So the products toward the top of the list fill all the gaps in the diet and provide the least amount of nutrients your horse doesn’t need. PLUS it excludes any product that exceeds upper safe limits for any nutrient.
So once you ‘diagnose’ deficiencies in the diet:
- Hit the Supplement Finder button.
- Go through the list and find a product from your preferred supplement manufacturer*.
- Put it into the diet at the specified dose; and
- Bingo, balanced diet!
* It is important to remember that FeedXL is only looking at the numbers for a supplement and is not considering ingredient quality or quality assurance standards of the manufacturers. So you still need to do your own research on the options given to you to make sure the supplement is made from high quality ingredients under reliable QA protocols.
The Supplement Finder feature of FeedXL is available in our Standard, Premium and Advisor plans.
Here is a video showing you exactly how it works!
